Hi

I have an instance of SQL Server 2005 installed on my Data server, and now I can not open the SQL Server Management Studio because I am getting an error in the EventsLog that the dll msvcr80.dll is not found.

I tried to get the right version od this DLL .6195 but still having this issue.

I tried also to reinstall only the SSMS component within the DVD and it doesn't work, sounds like it requires the all version installation.

I updates my Windows many times .... without any results.

I found some tools to fix the DLL but most of them need to pay for this, any free tool?

Any help for this

Thank you

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

not really, perform a full backup on existing database a nd uninstall all the components then give a server restart. Later you can try to install the SQL server from scratch.

For me, give a try to uninstall the client tools alone then give a server restart. It may help u. Good luck..

You may want to do a clean install of windows and sql server -from scratch.
(back up your data and sql server databases)

msvcr80.dll is a system file and from what i have seen in forums -it can be a problem to resolve if its missing or corrupted.
I would have thought instaling VC++ 2005 components and restarting the server would solve the problem -but you say it does not.

If re-installing windows is not an option,you will have to do with installing sql server management studio in another pc and then connect to your instance with databases in the server.
